Kotak which is also into Retail Stock Trading business had made all its clients BUY their company Futures ahead of the results. This is a matter of great concern and SEBI should investigate this matter ?
Coming back to Citi’s analysis, 40% yoy profit growth, but 7% below their estimate. KTKM’s loan book is up 56% yoy (4% qoq) and remains diversified across consumer loan segments, with almost no asset stress. Margins remain 5%+ in the face of funding challenges, though broking volumes are only flat.
Target price of Rs825 is based on EVA methodology. KTKM’s relatively high share of securities fees suggests a valuation benchmark of an investment bank. Kotak is expected to report an EPS of Rs 19.92 for FY2008 and Rs 25.46 for FY2009.
